Sure, who hasn't...time erases the pain though, hold in there, and you never know...things change...

Certainly
It's part of life I'm afraid.
Unrequited love it sure is hard but it does get easier through time.

Maybe focusing on someone else's drama will help:

YOU DO NOT WANT ME, ZORAH

You do not want me, Zorah
Is it because I am maimed?
Yet Tamour-Leng was maimed,
Going on crippled feet,
And he conquered the vast of the world.

You do not want me, Zorah
Is it because I am maimed?
Yet I have one arm to fight for you,
One arm to crush you to my rough breast,
One arm to break men for you.

It was to shield you from the Khargis
That I drag this stump in the long days.
It has been so with my women;
They would have made you a toy for heat.

After their chief with his axe once swinging
Cut my left arm, that, severed, bloody and dead,
Yet struggled on the ground trying to guard you,
I have had pain for long in my arm thatís lost.

Since the silk nets of your grape-lustrous eyes
Ensnared this heart that did not try to guard,
Ever I have had a great pain in my heart thatís lost.
You do not want me, Zorah.

- E.P.Mathers
- Translated from the Kazack poem of the Chief Gahuan-Beyg (1850-1885)
